Birchy Lake Cottage Development Plan

Proponent: Lands Branch, Dept. of Municipal Affairs and Environment

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The project consists of the development of 81 recreational cottage lots in two locations along the shoreline of Birchy Lake. The two locations are extensions of existing cottage development areas. To facilitate the development of these cottage lots the Land Management Division, Department of Environment & Conservation proposes to construct approximately 1.8 kilometres of Class “C” access road. The proposal will be a combination of waterfront and non-waterfront lots and will provide opportunities to infill adjacent to existing cottage development. Provisions will be made in the development to provide cottage owners and the general public access to the shoreline of Birchy Lake. All cottage lots will be allocated via the public draw process. Access to the proposed development is via two existing cottage roads. There will be no new access points to the TCH created with this development.
